This caught me by surprise- I thought Pat's message had a familiar ring to it (like it was the same message posted shortly after the second round of layoffs), but now I'm completely shocked and pissed. It's too bad that this had to happen at a time when everything else seems to be going wrong as well.

Rex, you're my first ever Favorite Fool and someone who I can say I've been here with since day one. While I'm obviously concerned about where you're planning on going from here, my first thought was of your kids. Have you informed them yet? If you're planning on heading back "home," are they excited about the return, or kind of bummed about having to move again?

I know you'll do fine- you're an awesome guy with some great skills that any company would want to get their hands on. Hey, if you're interested in joining the Wise, let me know, and I can have an interview set up in the major city of your choice- I'm not kidding about this. I had the pleasure of meeting the Director of National Recruiting and he seemed to really like me. He told me that if I ever needed a favor, all I had to do was ask... you'll let me know, but I think financial planning would be great for you- especially if you think that this TMF Money Advisor thing is a good idea (in theory).

Whatever you need- just ask... the bus is with you ;)
